You can also enter to win a 20-page critique from me. (I know what you're thinking--who am I to do this, right? Yeah, I sometimes ask myself the same question :). But, really, I have a good eye for strong openings. My forthcoming novel won competitions at Ms. Snark's First Victim, Guide to Literary Agents, and a host of other competitions. And I've been critiquing for ages, so I have a pretty good eye for what works, and what I can help you improve. So, if you have a manuscript (any genre except erotica--though I'm best with YA), I'll be happy to give you some honest (and nice, because the two aren't mutually exclusive) feedback.
So, here are the deets:
-Contest is open for the next two weeks, until 11:59pm on November 4th.
-You must be a follower of my blog.
-Fill out the google-docs form, please.
-Extra entries for spreading the word! (I'll admit it, I'd really like to hit 50 followers :)
Any questions, ask away in the comments! And please enter!
